Interview Question – What would you like least about taking this position? Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Zuberance in January 2009.
Interview Details – Head Hunter lead, 1st phone int, then face to face with CEO & VP. Mktg which I thought went well, follow up was to get a CEO product demo which he skipped and though I tried persistently to set it up again, they were already in contract discussions with another person. Small start-up and I've seen shifting job descriptions or unfinished Org chart plans which make it difficult to get in the heads of the employers as to what their true priorities are for new team members.

Interview Details –
I was initially exposed to this employer by a recruiter who matched up my resume as a good skills fit. I was attracted to the position because my search focused on startups, especially startups that had not yet dedicated any formal resource for UI and who had an additional need for branding and look-and-feel development.
Though I had a brief phone interview with the recruiter, the next step was a face to face with the employer, which is unusual. Usually there is another phone interview with someone at the company first. Though I was scheduled to meet with a VP, I actually wound up meeting with several engineers and a person who seemed to wear several hats, including (I think) managing marketing and internal training.
Everyone I spoke with was extremely nice, friendly, very professional, and efficient. The interview process had a friendly, casual feel. The engineers were very focused on cross-browser issues, and had several "quiz" questions that were difficult to answer well without having recently run into the very specific problems that were illustrated ( I was unable to solve the quiz questions without recourse to my usual solutions database... the web! ) In some companies the UI designer focuses on getting a strong process design and delivers screens, logic and assets - in others, the UI designer also has to be able to determine the actual engineering strategies that will be used and be able to deliver the key aspects of an engineering plan, and this position seems to be the second kind.
I was impressed by the company and the people I spoke with, and wanted to pursue the position, but never heard back - good or bad feedback, or closure. I think that the person who gets the position will need to be able to speak well in the interview to their problem-solving skills and approach, to their overall awareness of cross-browser issues, and also be prepared to ask questions about UI problems that are presented in order to propose a strong solution, instead of trying to guess what the "right" answer is to very specific questions.
